I am a geek, who likes Linux, and stays away from Windows. I work in computers, networking and such, all on Linux machines. Windows is barely a dumb terminal to my Linux servers.

comment Creating a custom launch action on the menu
And hw could I do that, say, from the root file manager, or whatever other file manager that comes with my iplementation of Android ? I know that those implementations vary from one hardware maker to another.

I installed it and it does not seem to be compatible with the built-in player in my HTC One V phone. The headphones connection is properly detected and triggers the action of starting it, but nothing sounds on it. I guess this is something specific to my player.

My headset is a cheapo one, with no button at all.Don't know whether this would work. I will try it.

I seem to have problems with it. I created the condition and action, but nothing seems to happen. I use the music player that is included with my cell phone, an HTC One V.

comment What are my options for connecting my Android to Ubuntu?
AirDroid is a web-based management system for Android devices. There is no sync function as per se, but you certainly can transfer files as you see fit. And if your device is rooted, you have access to all directories and files.
